The US rate of unemployment fell to 5.8% in October, according to the US Labour Department.

214,000 jobs were created in October, slightly less than forecast. But it still indicates strong growth in the US employment market.

It means that the US has created more than 200,000 jobs in nine consecutive months - the longest such spell since 1995.

This week's mid-term elections, which saw the Republicans take control of the Senate, revealed that employment was still the biggest concern for American voters.

It suggests, similarly to the UK, that despite an improving picture of the economy and employment, workers aren't seeing the benefit.

The recession is over. It's time to grow!
